Watford fans call for Mazzarri sacking on Twitter after Palace defeat

Watford manager Walter Mazzarri looks dejected

Watford lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Watford supporters took to Twitter to question Walter Mazzarri’s future following their 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace this weekend.

The Hornets went behind in the 68th minute when captain Troy Deeney headed Yohan Cabaye’s free-kick into his own net. Abdoulaye Doucoure and M’Baye Niang both had chances to snatch a point for the visitors but Sam Allardyce’s side held out for all three points.

Defeat sees Watford drop to 14th in the Premier League table with their resurgent opponents now three points behind them. Although the Hornets still have a seven-point cushion from the drop zone, some supporters feel a change in manager is needed to halt their worrying run of form and prevent the club from being sucked into a relegation battle.

If Mazzarri keeps his job over the international break, he will have important home games against relegation-threatened Sunderland and already-safe West Bromwich Albion to plan for.

This is what some Watford fans had to say about Mazzarri’s future on Twitter:
